    I don't really have a top ten or a top five. It's just whatever I'm listening to at the time, usually on YT. I'm curious what format you're using for the above though. CD, MP3, lossless, streaming...?

    I have hundreds, literally, that are my "reference" for testing headphones, that i personally created as Vids.
    The best way to approach a "list", is to give the headphones many genres` to deal with, and see how it goes.

    If you decide to dive in and get yourself all wet, then plz adjust the Vid's Rez to 780p....... Some say this does not matter, but it matters to me...:)

    #11 & #12 are a bonus.....

    So you're using your own bootlegged videos as an equipment reference for listening to other people's work?... That makes zero sense to me... unless you're only listening to your own bootlegged content. Whatshisface on IF (not Tyll) used to make the same type of circular arguments re speakers... I made it (referring to his own audio content), therefore I know it's right.

    I don't doubt that you have some authoring skills. But I'd question the validity of such work as a reference for other people's content. Just my 2c. I won't go into the ethics, or lack thereof, of uploading other people's work to YT again, as I'm sure you already know my feelings on that.

    I am still curious to know what media the OP is using for his selections though.

    I agree, in general, with your assertion re different genres btw. Some people like to use different gear for different genres though. And some only listen to one or a few genres. Listening to other genres on the equipment may, or may not be beneficial in these cases.
